The Coast Guard Foundation announced its first sailboat race, the Coast Guard Foundation Cup.

The Annapolis (Md.) Yacht Club will host the first Foundation Cup on May 14.

The event was established to raise funds for foundation programs, provide financial support for college to families of Coast Guard members lost in the line of duty and offer relief to Coast Guard families who have lost possessions in natural disasters.

The event is an overnight distance race, highlighted by a weekend of events that will increase awareness of the foundation and raise funds to support its projects and programs that benefit the Coast Guard.

The race will start and finish outside Annapolis Harbor. Additional events for participants are scheduled on May 13 and 15.

"The Coast Guard Foundation Cup is a perfect mix of two of my core passions - the Coast Guard Foundation and sailing," said Jim Muldoon, a foundation board member and chairman of the Foundation Cup, in a statement. "It is a great opportunity for sailors to take part in a competitive race and the community to learn more about the foundation and the tremendous work it does for our maritime guardians."
